    Default Russian submariners leather coat?

    OK I know nothing about this except I was given it about 8 years ago by a guy I knew, he said his grandfather got it off a Russian submariner at the end of WW2,
    I had/have my doubts as it never looks to have been issued? and it has no markings in it save a 2 near the collar.
    It is a very dark brown and very heavy though also very warm, I wore it one new years at a 1970's fancy dress night and it was great thing to be wearing at least on the pub to pub walks!
    If anything it looks more German to me?

    Not Soviet to the best of my knowledge.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Chhers Ade, no I didn't think so myself but I am sure it is government issue of some description and meant for cold weather, just a shame there are no stamps other than the 2, guessing it could have been issued by any 'East' European country including Germany?
